Facebook has just made an addition to its human assets. The ex-Motorola Marketing Chief, Gary Briggs was hired by the social network giant recently and it is proud of its acquisition of such a talented individual.
Facebook needed a Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) for its billion dollar enterprise. Gary Briggs, the ex-Motorola Marketing Chief turned out to be the right man for the job and so he was offered the opportunity to join Facebook. Briggs has taken the place of Eric Antonow. When Google took over Motorola for $12.5 billion a year ago, Briggs was appointed the CMO. Gary Briggs is very excited about being part of Facebook’s team. He is looking forward to working dedicatedly for the social network. According to Briggs, it is not simply an organization but a way of life for so many people who stay connected to friends and the things they care about via the Great Link Maker.
Before his previous job at Motorola, Briggs was into Consumer Marketing at eBay and Pepsico. It is the first time Facebook has appointed a CMO. Motorola meanwhile had recently revamped its insignia and introduced the world to its handset. A series of uncensored ads had landed it in the tabloids too. The person who left a spot vacant for Briggs at Facebook had been in the position since the past three years. Gary Briggs is definitely a very valuable person to enter the ranks of Facebook. In his own words he can hardly wait to get started at the new job that awaits him at the greatest social set up in this global village of ours.
